With so much of the focus in Marbella on Puerto Banús, La Zagaleta and the Golf Valley of Nueva Andalucía, there is an area that is sometimes a little overlooked yet highly popular with visitors and residents alike. In fact, Marbella East – the area extending from Río Real just east of Marbella town and Calahonda – is becoming increasingly fashionable.
Popular residential areas
Marbella East is no different from any other residential and resort area in that it combines different zones with specific characteristics and charms that appeal to a diverse range of tourists and homeowners. El Rosario, for instance, is a residential zone popular with families because it offers one of the best ranges of medium sized villas for sale in Marbella, while neighbouring areas such as Hacienda Las Chapas and urbanisations like Costabella, Vistamar and Los Pinos provide a peaceful setting close to sandy beaches.
Nearby are schools, shops, cafés, beach clubs and restaurants, while Elviria forms the heart of Marbella East with its professional amenities, commercial centre and resort hotels. The most famous of these is the five-star Don Carlos Hotel, whose beachfront is made up of the renowned Nikki Beach club. It is an area marked by private areas with Elviria frontline beach apartments and villas that on the mountain side of the coastal road occupy more undulating terrain overlooking golf courses and wonderful sea views.
The furthest eastward extension of Marbella brings you to Artola, Cabopino, Calahonda and Miraflores. Calahonda is another hubs of shops, restaurants and social life, while Cabopino is the site not only of a charming little marina and long sandy beaches, but also a protected extension of dunes and umbrella pines. The latter also extend further inland, where hill club urbanisations follow the gentle gradient of hills and golf clubs up to La Mairena, a residential area that combines proximity to the coast with a country atmosphere.
Luxury Marbella East addresses
Like most parts of Marbella the eastern region caters to a wide range of budgets, residential settings and property types, with Los Monteros and the area surrounding it regarded as one of the prime residential addresses in Marbella. The Los Monteros frontline beach villas actually rank among the most exclusive of properties in the entire region, while Bahía de Marbella, Los Monteros and Santa Clara offer other high end living environments close to the beach, overlooking golf and within easy range of all of Marbella’s amenities.
